The Latin American Film Festival (LAFF) is an initiative of the Latin American Embassies in Australia to showcase their culture, lifestyle and the evolution of the film industry in their respective countries.
The Embassies of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela have partnered once again to bring the biggest festival of its kind to cities throughout Australia. The Festival provides an opportunity to reach the Australian public through the universal language of film.
In keeping with the spirit of LAFF as a not-for-profit event, all the screenings are free of charge and open to the public. It is also an opportunity to bring the community together with Latino-flavoured events, and to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution of Latin American communities to Australian multiculturalism.
The 18th Latin American Film Festival (LAFF) is sponsored by the Council on Australia Latin America Relations (COALAR) and supported by the ANU Film Group and the Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies (ANCLAS).
The Festival will be launched in Canberra on 9 August. All 15 films will be screened in two parts at the Kambri Theatre, ANU – the first from 9-16 August and the second from 14-20 September. The titles and full program can be found here.
